In this edition of the UO Undergraduate Research Opportunity Highlight we look at the Undergraduate Research Fellowship program in the Center on Teaching and Learning.

Overview: The Undergraduate Research Fellowship (URF) Program allows full-time juniors and seniors in any major area of study the opportunity to work as Research Fellows throughout the University of Oregon. Admission to the program is competitive. Accepted students will work as valued members of a research team and will be granted a tuition waiver for the academic year. This program is specifically designed to encourage undergraduates to continue their studies in graduate school with a commitment to research and the process of scientific inquiry.

Admission to the program is based on the quality of a student’s application and personal statement (general focus, integration of activities, detailed planning), a student’s academic record, and faculty recommendations.
